  • 2016 Solo & Ensemble Contest at Eckstein March 19

    Eckstein’s vocal and instrumental music programs are hosting a Solo & Ensemble Contest for our students and other local schools on March 19th. This is a great opportunity for students to practice performing as a soloist or in a small group, a skill that will be useful as they progress to high school music programs or perhaps audition for other musical opportunities. Participating students will perform in front of professional adjudicators who give helpful and instructive feedback in a positive and low stress environment. Preparing a piece to perform can take some time, so interested students are encouraged to consult with their music teachers and begin to prepare. Students are assigned a performance time, so it is a fairly short time commitment on March 19th. If you have questions, feel free to contact your student’s music teacher or the Solo & Ensemble parent coordinator, Patti Colescott at 206-661-0176.

  • Feeling Stressed? We can help!

    Feeling Stressed? We can help! Middle school can be stressful at times and knowing how to manage stress really helps. Eckstein counselors will again be offering a six session training for Eckstein students to help them understand and cope with personal stress. The Stress Management class is open to all Eckstein students and may also be beneficial for students who are having difficulty managing anger. We offered this class last year and the students found it so helpful that some want to take it again. As with all Eckstein intervention groups and classes, the Stress Management class will meet during the school day and pull students from a different class each week to minimize academic impact in any one subject. Parental permission is required to join. Joining is easy – simply contact any of the counselors via email or use the permission form available in the counseling center to confirm your student’s participation. The class is planned to begin in mid Feb. and space is limited to approx.20 students, so join now to reserve your place!

    The Counseling Department will be starting some support groups for students- 6th grade Girls’ group, 6th grade Academic /Study Skills Group and Stress Management Group. We have identified students for all three through our Personal Needs Assessment, but wanted to reach out to parents and guardians for student referrals, as well. We will then screen students to see if they are interested and if the group is appropriate for their needs. Please contact the counseling department if you would like to refer your child or would like more information.
  • Reflections deadline extended to Friday, 11/13

    Get out the paint, the dancing shoes, the camera, the instruments …. and show us your imagination! Reflections is a state and national PTSA program that provides an opportunity for students to be creative in one of six categories: dance, film, music, visual arts, photography and literature. This year’s theme is “Let your imagination fly.” Creativity in the arts is a great way to express one’s self and a fun way to learn, so Eckstein’s PTSA is pleased to support the Reflections program.

Parents and Guardians -- Student safety is our top priority, and you can help us keep students safe by keeping these things in mind as you drop off and pick up your child at Eckstein:

  • Drive SLOWLY and USE EXTRA CAUTION whenever driving near the school
  • Do NOT drop off or pick up in the bus zone in front of Eckstein - Remind your student to cross the street at the crosswalk in front of the school, not at the corner of 30th & 75th where visibility is poor

Thank you for your cooperation in creating a safe environment for all of our kids!
